Bluetooth / Wireless

  • When I connect my JBL speaker with a computer (PC/Laptop/Apple Mac/Nintendo Switch), can I use the PartyBoost feature?
    The PartyBoost feature is not available when your JBL speaker is connected to a computer via Bluetooth. This is a technical limitation. When connected to a computer, the computer is acting as the primary device. Therefore, the JBL speaker does not have control of re-transmitting the Bluetooth signal to other JBL speakers.

    NOTE: Speakers effected by this are the JBL Flip 5, JBL Flip 6, JBL Charge 5, JBL Pulse 4, JBL Xtreme 3, and JBL Boombox 2, as well as all future products featuring the PartyBoost feature.
    Pairing issues with a Computer or PC
    In most cases when a Computer/PC/Laptop has issues connecting to a Bluetooth device (Portable speaker, Headphones, Active speakers), it's caused by your Computer/PC/Laptop's Bluetooth driver (software).

    The driver (software) should support the following Bluetooth protocols, to be able to play music/sound from your Computer/PC/Laptop:

    • A2DP (Advanced Audio Distribution Profile) driver for your Computer/PC/Headphones to transfer music.

    • AVRCP (Audio/Video Remote Control Profile) driver to send skip/forward/pause/play music to your device

    Always get the latest driver version available for your Computer/PC/Laptop.

    To download the correct driver (software), visit the manufacturer's website of your Computer/PC/Laptop. They usually have a "Support/Download" section where you can find the correct driver. Otherwise, we advise you to contact their support.

    The standard drivers provided by Microsoft/Windows system are not correct and will result in error messages (such as having to enter a PIN code), or pairing will not work.

    The Checklist

    Let us walk-through a list of things needed to ensure every requirement is met.

    1. Check your mobile device if that is able to connect to same Wireless network.
    2. Make sure you are within range of your Wireless router.
    3. Check the Wireless signal on your mobile device, does it have a weak signal then move closer to the router.
    4. Try both Wireless network bands 2.4GHz and 5GHz in case one of them are failing.
      1. You will have longer range with 2.4GHz, but less performance and most of the times a crowded network (many devices are using 2.4GHz band).
      2. You will have less interference with 5GHz and higher performance, however, the range of the 5GHz network has shorter range.
    5. Try using a different mobile device, if you have one.
    6. Reboot your Wireless network router and your mobile device.

    Wireless Network Extender

    Some houses or apartments can be too big for one Wireless network router to cover it all.
    Let's talk about the issues that might appear with an Extender network.

    1. Network Extenders that will help cover poor signal in your home, often results in poor connection and low speed performance.
    2. Often the Network Extender is a low budget device or not suited for having too many devices attached to it.
    3. Placement of the speaker is crucial as you can put it in a place where it could connect to either main Wireless router or the Extender, that will confuse Wireless network devices.
    4. To solve this issue, try move the speaker closer to main router or have fewer devices attached to your Wireless Extender.
    5. In addition, always use 5GHz connection between your Network extender and main router (best solution and performance).

    One Wireless Network Name (SSID)

    1. You may have set the Wireless Network SSID (Wi-Fi network name) to one big Wireless network (With a main router + Extender(s).
    2. If the JBL LINK device is within range of both Wireless networks (Main router & Extender) then it can get confused with which one to connect to.
    3. To solve this issue, using two different name for your extended network will help with the performance of the JBL LINK Speaker and Google Assistant request.

  • TWS Mode Capabilities and Restrictions
    You can connect two of the same Partybox models (e.g. 2 x Partybox 310, or 2 x Partybox 100) together in TWS Mode by pressing and holding the Bluetooth button on both speakers for 5 seconds, or by pressing the dedicated TWS buttons on the rear panels of both speakers on the Partybox 110, 310 and 710. It is possible to pair two different Partybox models together using a wired connection (e.g. 1 x Partybox 310 and 1 x Partybox 100). It is also possible to pair two Partybox different models wirelessly in Party mode, however this is only possible with the newer Partybox models - the Partybox 110, 310 and 710. The Partybox 200 & 300 can be paired in TWS mode as they are the same model apart from the presence of a battery in the Partybox 300. If you connect an instrument or microphone to one Partybox speaker while using TWS, the instrument or microphone connected to one speaker will be reproduced by this speaker alone. You will not hear the instrument or microphone in both speakers. If it is necessary to have instruments reproduced by two or more PartyBox speakers, it is possible to use an RCA or aux cable – connected from the RCA, aux or daisy chain outputs on the speaker that the instrument or microphone is connected to, wired to the RCA, aux or daisy chain input of the secondary speaker. Alternatively a small mixing console can be used - connecting audio sources to this mixer and sending the mixed audio signal to the speakers with a wired connection.

    More FAQs
  • My JBL GO goes into standby when I play quietly. Why is that, and can something be done to change this?
    With some phones, such as iPhones and some Android models, volume is synchronized while Bluetooth is used, and levels below volume setting 6 (tested with iPhone 6 and iPhone 5s) and volume setting 5 on most Android devices will cause the GO to enter standby after some minutes. If you want to play softer while still using your iPhone as a source, please change to cabled connection from the headphone output to the AUX input of GO. This will make it possible for you to set the GO's volume at its minimum step, and then control total level on the telephone. Of course, if source level from the telephone is set extremely low, the GO will go into standby again, because GO needs a certain level to keep playing. Alternatively, use a phone which does not synchronize volume as source. Many Android phones do not synchronize volume, so by using such a phone, you can adjust GO to its lowest level, adjusting total level independently, even via Bluetooth. This will usually result in music volume at the desired level.
